Bank Holiday

Hey y'all got this Monday off thanks to the great British tradition of bank holidays, thought I'd take the opportunity to hook you up with some of my tunes from today. Tracks after the art!
Indie184 - Bliss
I have a couple of FlyLo's demos on here, this isn't from this years Ideas+Drafts+Loops though, this is taken from the '06 on, the same year his debut dropped on Plug Research. It's sounds very different from that though, much more rough round the edges like Los Angeles. Track 'em down for some interesting but unfinished sounds.

Bit of a jump now as I revisit Kittin & The Hacker's debut. Surprisingly I hadn't posted this one, it's pretty light all things considered, definitely far from the crude cult track Frank Sinatra. The Hacker's production really shines on this one, there's a lot of lovely sounds going around among Kittin's vocal accompaniment.

Another album I've dug out of my crates recently: Felix Da Housecat's Virgo Blaktro & The Moviedisco. It's pretty solid, though the second half seems to be made up of short tunes like this one here. Still, not to knock it too much, I'd forgotten how much of a funk/disco influence there was on here, it's kinda like Proto-Chromeo in a way. I dig it a lot.

And finally another reworking from the Sneaker Pimps' debut. This mix takes the hazy trip hop of the original and adds a little bit of a harder edge to it. I almost prefer it because the original does get a bit of 90's pop going on whereas this is more like straight up trip hop. Keep yer ears peeled for the cheeky Massive Attack sample.
